So long summer

The Andover Townsman

---- — Locals got in one last paddle at Pomps Pond last Saturday as they joined the Shawsheen River Watershed Association for its third annual Autumnal Equinox Celebration at the recreation area on Abbot Street.

In addition to some canoeing and kayaking on the pond, the event included a short program on astronomy and the history and culture of the equinox.

Joe’s Garage supplied the music and a roaring campfire allowed for the making of s’mores and toasting of marshmallows to bring a sweet end to the last official day of summer.
